Offering an easy and cost-effective way to migrate from 10 megabits per second (Mbps) networks to 100 Mbps networks, DEC's new Fast EtherWORKS10/100 PCI adapter works with both, automatically sensing the correct operating speed.In full-duplex mode, it may provide twice the throughput (up to 200 Mbps). And it can save institutions other costs as it allows more client connections per server."Aggressively priced," according to DEC, the card supports PCI-based Alpha, Intel, PowerPC and MIPS systems under popular OSs.DEC also lowered the price of their line of 10 Mbps Ethernet PCI adapters. All cards have a lifetime warranty. Digital Equipment Corp., Maynard, MA, (800)344-4825.
